I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same as the meaning of the fact that I am Black: it means that I must undertake to love myself and to respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.
I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I don't know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will NOT ask, How many good things have you done in your life, rather he will ask, How much LOVE did you put into what you did
I am YOUR biggest fan, I love each one of you because of the support that you took to me. I know that people been saying that I do this for money, but I really don't. I do this for YOU, for your loyalty, for everything you've done, you are doing and you'll do in my life. Music has been my whole life since I was 4 years old, but you turned it into a whole experience of happiness. I know that I am not perfect, and maybe I don't worth it to put on your headphones and listen to this 14-years-old wannabe, full of ego and that brag about almost everything, but it's not about that, it's about you
I believe that any living thing can be beautiful if you love it. Most mothers of small children hate insects. That’s why I draw insects larger than life on purpose. I do that so they can see what lovely eyes the insects have.
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge That myth is more potent than history That dreams are more powerful than facts That hope always triumphs over experience That laughter is the only cure for grief And I believe that love is stronger than death.
I can think of no better way of redeeming this tragic world today than love and laughter. Too many of the young have forgotten how to laugh, and too many of the elders have forgotten how to love. Would not our lives be lightened if only we could all learn to laugh more easily at ourselves and to love one another
I did toy with the idea of doing a cook-book. The recipes were to be the routine ones: how to make dry toast, instant coffee, hearts of lettuce and brownies. But as an added attraction, at no extra charge, my idea was to put a fried egg on the cover. I think a lot of people who hate literature but love fried eggs would buy it if the price was right.
I do believe that I'm "NOTHING" without "LOVE" do you know why? It's just because, the scripture says so in (1st Corinthians Chapter 13 : 2) Yes, in case you don't know, so says the scripture and that means you are also "NOTHING" without "LOVE". Having known that, you've got to love everyone for life regardless of their colour/race/tribe/religion/language/sex.
I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.
I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success....Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.
I don't believe in coincidence. I mean, all things happen for a reason and for a lesson too. Yes, you just heard me right. Everything that do happen under this planet earth/world whether good or bad, favourable or unfavourable is meant for a reason and for a lesson to be learnt by all humans. Now, that infers, nothing goes for nothing. You've got to accept the above fact. Because, even the scripture has said it long ago before now in ROMANS 8 : 28. It says, all things work together for good of them that love God i.e. even that your so seemed failure, disappointments, setbacks and stuffs like that, will sooner or later turn out for your good/betterment. Oh! Yes, that's just what will be your fate/portion. If only you do believe/accept the above fact. For, until you believe, that's when you will surely see/receive from God. Scripture reference JOHN 11 : 40. Never forget, whatever you undoubtedly believe in, definitely works for you and never against you. That is that.
